25 Best R&B Albums Of 2013

December 27th, 2013 6:30pm EST
It truly saddens me to see R&B, a personal favorite style of music, in a state of uncertainty.  2013 found the numbers of R&B down considerably, a trend that is consistent year in and year out. Save for a select few commercial bright spots (led by an unexpected Beyoncé album), R&B only dented the charts. Even so, finding 25 albums with some significance wasn’t difficult to do.  Sure, some of the lowest ranked albums have their flaws, but each has some reason for being selected.  Enjoy!

December 16th, 2013 10:03am EST
Beyoncé truly shocked the world on Friday, December 13 by releasing her fifth studio album, Beyoncé without anyone expecting her to do so.  While Mrs. Carter had alluded to the fact that she’d be releasing new music before the end of the year, typically by December, album releases are set.
